Re: sony KF50XBR800 Turn off and on issue

You will need to replace your bulb.
It costs around $ 300.00 for a new bulb.
After you have installed it, your TV will look new once again.

Sony kds-r50xbr1 turns itself off and then green light blinks 52

I too have a Sony KDS-R60XBR1 tv and the issue that you are experiencing is due to one of your fans in the rear of the tv is not working.  The tv automatically shuts off in protective mode.  Make sure the POWER/STANDBY light is blinking and not the lamp light below it.  Is the power/standby blinking 4 times in red? If, yes then its a fan that needs to be replaced.  If its the lamp light blinking then you need to replace the lamp.  The lamp is easy to replace by ordering the lamp either from Sony for $250 or find it cheaper for approx. $150 from other DLP sources and replace youself by following your manual.  I hope this helps you.

Sony kf-50XBR800 tv turns itself on and off

I just purchased a replacement lamp off ebay and the TV is working fine now. Color looks better too (which I guess I should have expected). Search for "REPLACEMENT LAMP SONY XL-2100U" on eBay and look for seller "niosales". I paid $129 out the door. Their are other auctions for this lamp you can check out. Make sure you look at lamps that include the entire lamp housing, not just the bulb.

Sony KF-50XBR800

How many times does it blink. It should be blinking a repeating code if its in protective shutdown mode. A continuos blinking with no pauses means.
No reply from the jungle IC(data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held
high), IK video path is defective.

Grand Wega picture going on and off; standby light flashing, sound remains on

Is the cooling fan running properly?  I'm just guessing, but it sounds like it could be overheating and shutting off, which allows it to cool off enough to turn on and overheat all over again.
